A Return To The Zombicide Dungeons

So I've managed to go over a month without posting on the blog. And what a month it's been- lots of work family issues, a missing tooth and a broken toe. There has been no hobby time at all really, but finally I got another Tuesday Game Night under the belt.

Bull suggested an all-out game of Black Plague, with every model, card, token he owned. Oh yes, the big monsters came out to play (or at least sit on the bench and watch). To spice things up even more, we got to choose one character apiece, the rest were random - no dream team available here to face our biggest test.

To be fair we didn't do too badly with character selection. It opened our eyes to individuals I certainly have dismissed in the past and, with a bit of good luck, we managed to sail through the scenario without so much as a scare. Bull has a more detailed retelling on his blog.

Alas, as I eluded to earlier, we did get the Blobination on the board, but given his relative slow speed we managed to evade him. This meant that none of the other Monster Abominations could be on the board at the same time, so we dodged that particular pitfall (some of those guys sound nasty!).

Our biggest problem was the Necromancers. Once we added the character necro cards into the pack, the Necromancers were getting loads of extra goes, positively sprinting around the board. We managed to contain the threat in the end, only one actually getting off the board.

Great fun, and great to get back into some gaming. More gaming tonight with Chris, so we'll see how that goes!


  1. Sorry to hear that things have not been going your way, but great to get all the toys on the board again.

  2. He, he - I read the scenario again and we were not supposed to leave the board until the abominations were dead. I wonder if that just meant the abominations that came from the objectives (the Evil Twins) or did it also apply to those that came in from the edge. Emmmm. Great fun though.

    1. I have to confess that it all sounded a bit too easy. :)

    2. We killed the first one and the second didn't arrive because of Ablobination. Maybe we needed to kill him. Gwen could just have shot him from 3 squares away!

  3. I feel for you, it has been a slow month for me too.
    The game looks like fun!
